Sorry, the Mystery is now closed.
You are hereby invited to take part in Mrs Moen Spring Mystery 2010.
About the project:
- It's suitable for any decor depending on your choice of fabrics.
- It's suitable for beginner quilters.
- It’s based on a traditional block with a fun, little twist.
- It’s great for scrap- and stashbusting (unless you want an excuse to buy some more fabric).
- You will have 4 12”*12” blocks (finished size) which you can use for
a table runner ca 12”*48” without borders
or a wall hanging/table topper ca 24”*24” without borders
or you can set them on point or add sashing or borders...
First, let me show you mine
You will need a main colour, style or value (A) (for instance lights, greys, pastels, 30ies, yellows, flowers) and 3 fabrics that stand out from this (B-D):
A: several fabrics (5+) in your main colour/style/value (mine is taupe); enough for a total of 68 2½”*4½”pieces.
B: a contrasting fabric (light if your main fabrics are dark, dark if they are light, mine is white), a 4½”*32” strip will do.
C: a fabric somewhere between pink and red (mine is red), a 4½”*32” strip will do.
D: a fabric somewhere between yellow and orange (mine is orange), a 4½”*11” piece will do.
I know picking fabric can be hard at any time, so you can email me pictures if you have any questions about your choices.
There will be 5 instalments including these general instructions. I will post once a week on Mondays starting on Jan 25th, which will give you a couple of weeks to get your fabrics together:
2 Cutting, Jan 25th
3 1st round of piecing, Feb 1st
4 2nd round of piecing, Feb 8th
5 Putting it together, Feb 15th
You will sign up by leaving a comment to this post, making sure I get your email address (either through your Blogger profile or leave one here). The instructions with pictures will be posted in a separate blog. I will post the link here at Mrs Moen on the dates set; you’ll just follow the link and use your email address to get access.
You will sew at your own pace; the prize you will get for finishing is a fun, little project. I would love to see pictures of your finished projects though!
Copy the Mystery image (with a link to this post) into your blog to spread the word if you like; the more the merrier. If you have any questions, send me an email.
